What incentive do listeners have to buy artist (know or unknown) music if they can listen for free on their phones, laptops, etc all day long??
Jango profits by the ads, which is great. But what incentives can you give your listeners to purchase the artist music so they can keep making more of it and stay on Jango??

Thank You

i pay a lot on here as a artist and it is a great tool but i think jango should offer a radio station that plays all the time were we can have our music be heard to millions of people at one time instead of one by one person jango you have the genre stations this will be a great ideal if you had those stations as a regular radio station were it plays all the time so no matter what time you tune in everybody will hear the same song this is how kmel and 949 can break artist in the music industry and jango is better but if you do this you will get more artist like me happy and more artist will love it and will want to spend more money jango i am pleading with you please have something like this this is what artist need to make it big in the music industry jango is the outlet we just need more people to hear our music and if you turn these genre stations into regular radio stations you will give the independent artist the tool it needs to compete with the major labels and finally get our music to the masses

To the anonymous poster that starts their post with, "What incentive do listeners have to buy artist (know or unknown) music if they can listen for free on their phones, laptops, etc all day long??"; In my opinion you cannot look at Jango as a money-making resource, if you are you will most likely be let-down based on your very first comment." I do think people that really like your music will buy it, but moreover they will become your fan. This is marketing 101. Once you have a fan-base you can market perfomance dates, albums, merchandise etc. Your priority is to get your music out there, free or otherwise. That is the game these days. Even "big" artists on "big" labels dont make serious money with album/song sales anymore.
